Google Cloud supports premium enterprise Linux distributions such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) or SuSE Linux Enterprise (SLES). Migrate for Compute Engine supports converting a VM's license from a purchased license to one included in your Google Cloud bill via the Google Cloud Marketplace, where costs are based on the resources that you use.
- VM(s) running RHEL 6/7 or SLES 11/12
- Migrations organized using Waves
Setting premium license types
Open your runbook CSV. Find the rows that describe the VMs you want to apply premium licenses to. Populate the license:os field with the URL from the table below. If the field is left blank, the existing license remains.
Note: license:os should correspond to OsType, which is queried from vSphere and when creating the runbook.
